Our Friends Traumatic Accident

Imagine taking a ride with your girlfriend to pick up her daughter.  Then think about waking up in a hospital and finding out that you have survived a head on collision with a truck speeding away from the police.  Yes, this is what happened to our friends Rick Clark and Helen Pecoraro on November 14th. 

This unfortunate accident of timing has left Ricky with over 24 broken bones, and Helen with over 12 broken bones.  Both still remain hospitalized.  They each have already had 2 surgeries.  Ricky requires more surgery in time as his other injuries need time to heal.  Rehabilitation and therapy will take 6 to 9 months with hopes of returning to his workplace of over 25 years. 

If it is at the very least we can do to help offer a little relief to Rick and Helen, and let them know we have raised money to keep their rent paid while they are in the hospital, then this is Rick's brother, Tony, myself and so many of all our friends I have spoken to's, HOPE.Please if possible share this message with your friends and let's try and make this happen.  Even if you aren't able to donate, helping spread this to everyone you can, is the best possible donation too! 

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT
